Love the West Virginia Rural Health Conference?

Want to be a part of making it happen?

The West Virginia Rural Health Association is now looking for new people to join the Conference Planning Committee.

The annual West Virginia Rural Health Conference is fast becoming one of the most critical gatherings in the region for health professionals, students, community members and advocates to learn from and network with others interested in improving rural health care.

Already scheduled for Huntington in October, 2019, next year’s gathering is sure to build on the burgeoning reputation of this conference as one not to miss.

Conference Planning Committee members do not have to be a member of the West Virginia Rural Health Association, but they are required to participate in all of the meetings and work on a subcommittee. The subcommittees are responsible for planning key parts of the conference, such as the presentations, the West Virginia Rural Health Awards, scholarships and poster presentations. The meetings are by phone on the the 3rd Thursday of the month at 11 a.m., between January and June.

If you are interested in being a part of something fun and satisfying and that has a real impact on the health, wealth and happiness of West Virginia’s people, we can use you!
